That was pretty good. last time I flew, I think I was already asleep before the flight attendant said anything.

Nope, my sister told me to kill it so I chopped that freakish effing thing in half with a garden hoe!
:lol:

Strangely enough, until I read l33t p1mp's post, I though you said garden hose. For the next 3 posts I was trying to figure out how to chop a bug in half with a hose. I need to learn how to read.

In Topic: What ethernet cable?

The difference between cat5 cat5e cat6 and cat7 are the standards the cables are built with. Thus also changing what data rate they can handle. The only thing most people need to know is that cat5 is good only up to 100mb connection (which is what most people have) whereas the other standards can handle gigabit connection also. Just get the cat5e, it will handle anything a home/office user can throw at it, unless you are building your own super computer cluster and the computers communicate over the network. Keep all lengths under a 100 meters and you will be fine.

In Topic: what do you guys/gals think about the killer nic cards?

Here is a test for you, ping your router. I bet its less than 1ms (if its wired). now open a torrent get it downloading greater than 1mbps and have two concurrent http downloads bringing your total down to something like 1.5mbps down with multiple open connections. now ping your router, it might be up to 1 or 2ms. Thats what mine is. So, even heavily loaded, the most a better network card could cut off is 1-2ms. Not worth it. I know this only tests latency, not throughput, (cant really upload allot to the router), but it should give you an idea of how little benefit you are going to get from this. Unless you really think its going to lessen the load on your cpu that much.

if there is something im missing someone please tell me, but I see no benefit from these cards.
